got started from Spur Cross after 6am. did the lasso counter clockwise. 247A is rougher than I remember it. Definitely moved slower along that trail mainly due to how rocky it is. It's faint in some spots, but still fairly easy to find.

the huge crested saguaro below 247 in the wash looks like it might be sick or dying. Looks like it's seen better days. the westernmost section of 247 I hadn't hiked in over 12 years, so it was like a new hike again to do that section.

saw a trail maintenance crew on 247 a mile or so east of the junction with the Cave Creek Trail. After that I began to see other hikers. Took Metate back instead of Spur Cross. The closer I got to the TH, the more hikers there were.

ended up doing 10 miles. Weather was cool and windy early on. got warmer once the sun hit, but not hot. Kept my sweatshirt on the whole time and didn't feel overheated.
